Frances Sword is the Chair of Talking in Tune
Frances spent her working life in museums; for many years she was the Head of Education at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. Her main interests are in the arts; she paints and sings with ReSound, the Cambridge a cappella choir.
Roger Giddings is our Treasurer.
Roger initially worked in the Film Industry, then obtained a BA in Architecture. Finding the thought of endless extensions too daunting he put his back into qualification as an Osteopath – and has since been working in and around Cambridge for over 30 years. He has been involved in running several companies, Physic the most recent, which at its peak had a work force of nearly 25 people. As retirement looms he can spend more time on Meditation and Taijiquan, and to his amazement has found a ‘voice’.
Sue Durham is our Secretary.
Sue’s career was spent in Human Resources. Her interests include the theatre and travel, she plays an enthusiastic, if erratic, game of table tennis, and she sings with ReSound and Cambridge Timeline Choir.
Sue’s career spanned special needs education, both as an educator and trainer. She left teaching to work for the charity Victim Support, latterly managing the Witness Service at the Magistrates and Crown Courts in Cambridge, before her retirement. She enjoys Tai Chi, Art history visiting galleries, and reading. Sue is a fundraising volunteer for the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity. She sings with Global Harmony and Sing! Cambridge choir.
Anne is a part-time administrator in a couple of Cambridge University departments and a freelance copy-editor and typesetter, with a particular interest in art history, archaeology, languages, gardening, cookery and handicrafts (knitting, sewing, lacemaking). She is a committee member of the Empty Common Allotment Society. Anne has sung with Good Vibrations community choir and the Lucy Cavendish Singers.
